ORLANDO, Fla. – If you live in Central Florida, alligators can show up anytime, anywhere.
(Scroll down to see which Florida lakes have the most “bull” alligators.)
While gator encounters often make headlines, News 6 wanted to know just how frequent are those sightings, and where are Florida alligators spotted the most?
News 6 found, at least once a day on average, Florida alligators and human habitats collide.
That is considered “bull gator” status, and locally, Lake Poinsett on the St. Johns River, Lake Kissimmee in Osceola County, and Lake Jesup in Seminole County had the largest population of “bull” alligators (or alligators longer than nine feet).
